Pandas rumbling
As the
Nerves rain
Dives into
A pond,
So the rain is safe.

a breeze blows
light pink petals brush past me

The Buzzing Sound

I firmly hold the shiny golden instruments

I tighten my lips getting ready to blow

the buzzing sound resounds through the room

With every buzzing sound I make

Closed Doors

I cry myself to sleep,
Just wishing it would stop.
Maybe tomorrow it will cease,
Then again maybe not.

You push me and you poke me,
You call me hurtful names.
To me it’s like a living hell,
To you it’s like fun and games.

Your heart is made of cold ice,
But it doesn’t even deserve that.
Mine was once a rainbow,
But you’ve molded . . . → Read More: April 2014

The Beach

The beach is great
There’s nothing to hate
Seagulls fly
The waves never die
Whenever I go
We move slow
Waves crashing
Children bashing
I love the beach

Early December

I wake up to celebrate our past
Looking out through my window I feel tremendously equal
Making my morning tea I feel the warmth between us
We remember early December

Playing at school knowing evil is far from us people
As I decorate my glittering snow flake making Christmas
two of our most treasured times of the month
We applaud in . . . → Read More: March 2014

Red Cap (Wolf’s Perspective in Carol Ann Duffy’s “Little Red Cap”)

In the morrow’s light I took a stroll, once again on my own,
Down the fertile dirt path of my home, the forest
Was delicate, the green birch leaves, the sweet scented maple trees,
Till you came at last to the railway line, the edge, the last pine.

February 2014


I may seem silent
But inside I am screaming
I may be violent
But I call it dreaming

You can think
Whatever you want of me
But there are these problems
That you’ll never begin to see

You can laugh
I won’t cry
I’ll just silently scream
And wish to die

You can hit me
And say its fair
I just want to stop breathing
Because you’ll never care

Category 5

Katrina, Katrina
danced like a ballerina,
hit the Louisiana coast,
like a bewitching ghost
Katrina, Katrina
category 5,
you blew in from the south,
and changed all our lives,
Katrina, Katrina
you caused such misery,
you’ll always be a part of
our history

True Death

I slowly kiss the lips of my once true love
Taking in the remaining essence of what was once his soul
My lips of red
His bone of white
It is as if he never left me
